Select google account in messaging
- username : yourFacebookName@chat.facebook.com
- password : yourFacebookPassword

That should work .
Please tell me if that did work so i can update the tutorial

It's working for me as well but, as someone pointed out on the previous page, it's mandatory rebooting your Palm Pixi after following the steps or it won't connect to your FB account.

You must install Virtualbox 3.2 and Palm SDK on your PC. Later, execute a command terminal (cmd.exe on Windows "Start" supposing your OS is W7) and then follow the instructions on this page. Good luck!

Did everything according to instructions, but for some reason could not connect. First disable Google Calendar. Now when you try to mount a Google search account automatically replaces my Gmail mail on yourFacebookName@chat.facebook.сом - and accordingly an error connecting your account ... Help please.

Never mind. Decided to just buy the app instead of trying to figure this out.

Hi forgive me if this is a painfully dumb question, but how do I put the 'fb' folder onto my phone memory? Using Quick Install?

Connect the phone in usb drive mode then open it in windows file explorer and transfer the folder.

REPLACE with your real info then run :
NEVER RUN THIS TWICE IN A ROW ! If you misspelled or anything, RUN STEP 4 BEFORE RUNNING IT AGAIN ! This script assume that everything is UNMODIFIED !


Excuse me, "replace" what?

Actually, I thought this stopped working at some point. (Correct me if I'm wrong?)

QuickChat for Facebook app is pretty fantastic solution though.

Ok, I don't know how, but it worked. It's fine enough, at least it's in real time and updates itself instantly, that's what I want.

Got Facebook Chat to work perfectly on WebOS 2.2.4 AND 3.0.5 (should work on any 2.x and 3.x ) !
For 1.x I have no way to test it but it SHOULD work ! Can someone confirm it ?

/!\ I'm not responsible for any problem, loss of data, dead kitten or exposition to justin bieber that could occur if you follow this tutorial ! /!\
/!\ Although the risk seems minimum, You should save all your data before beginning ! /!\


What works :
- Contacts name
- Contacts picture
- Integration with other service (Synergy)
- Send and receive text

What doesn't :
- The "type" of the account is shown as "Google".
- Nothing else ^^

// Changelog for this tutorial//




// Credits //
This method wouldn't work without this tutorial (ALL credits to Klaus Reimer) :
Generic Jabber (XMPP) with webOS - K's cluttered loft



// The problem (ONLY On 2.x and 3.x) //

A tutorial exist to connect to jabber, but it require to have a valid google account with the email you wan't to use in the chat.
But you can't create a dummy google account for login@chat.facebook.com, because it can't receive email.
So we are going to modify the file that check for the validity of the account.



// What you need //

For 1.x, 2.x and 3.x
-> A Facebook account (yeah i know, quite obvious), you also have to know your unique facebook name, the name that appear in your facebook profile url :
https://www.facebook.com/yourFacebookName
Should be a link to your profile

-> Some patience

ONLY For 1.x

-> The file "Pre 1x.zip" in the attachments of this thread


ONLY For 2.x and 3.x
-> A Google account (any name you want) with the SAME password as your facebook account. Let's call it : "yourGoogleAccount@gmail.com"

-> The file "Pre 2x Touchpad 3x.zip" in the attachments of this thread



// Let's do this ! //

// For 1.x //
-> 1 :
Extract the zip file and put the "fb" folder on your phone memory.

-> 2 :
Connect using novacom or run these command in a terminal :


-> 3 :
You are done you can add your account in the messaging app, select Google and put your infos :
username : yourFacebookName@chat.facebook.com
password : yourFacebookPassword


// For 2.x and 3.x //
-> 1 :
Extract the zip file and put the "fb" folder on your phone memory.

-> 2 :
Connect using novacom or run these command in a terminal :


REPLACE with your real info then run :
NEVER RUN THIS TWICE IN A ROW ! If you misspelled or anything, RUN STEP 4 BEFORE RUNNING IT AGAIN ! This script assume that everything is UNMODIFIED !


-> 3 :
Wait for luna to restart then add your account in the messaging app, select Google and put your infos :
username : yourFacebookName@chat.facebook.com
password : yourFacebookPassword

Uncheck everything except for messenger.
You can also check Contacts, this way you will be able to link your friends in the FB chat with your friends phone number, skype and all. But if you already added FaceBook as an account for Contacts, it won't link automatically FB contacts and FB chat contacts.

-> 4 :
To cleanup and restore the ability to add google account, connect using novacom or run these command in a terminal :


-> 5 :
Version 2.x ONLY :
If you have a Google chat account already configured, you have to go in accounts, and disable it. Connect to the chat, disconnect, and reenable. (Otherwise you can't send message to your FB contacts due to a WebOS 2.x bug).


If you have any question regarding this tutorial, post them here !

Note on 3.0.5 touchpad update :
In case of an update, the account will no longer work, just follow tutorial again and instead of adding a new account, connect your old one .


I apologize for any English mistake i could have made in this tutorial, im French so English isn't not my native language :s
worked on my pixi plus

Is there a workaround for this? I love how this works for synergy. I have Quickchat for FB as well but with synergy I don't have to leave an app open which is nice since I don't normally leave cards open but like to be able to know if someone is writing me since the terrible Facebook app doesn't do such a thing apparently.
